It can be a struggle to maintain your weight when you’re on the go all the time.
It’s too easy to get caught up with what you’re doing, then realise that eight hours have passed, you haven’t eaten, you’re starving and bam! Before you realise it, you’ve eaten two chocolate bars, a large pizza and three packets of crisps. You feel bloated yet somehow still hungry. Believe me, I’ve been there far too many times.
I had to find a way of maintaining an energy equilibrium without taking too much time out of the day.
I knew that I was becoming incredibly dehydrated throughout the day and I suspected that this was adding to my energy drops. So, I bought myself a water bottle to carry with me wherever I went.
I’ll admit, I was a little skeptical as to how much difference it would make.
Well, did it work?
More than I’d imagined, I’m happy to say.
My bottle goes with me everywhere now – work, shopping, gym. It’s one of those metal ones and it’s a bit battered & scarred these days. I find myself sipping all day long.
If I’m on a job where the client forgets to feed the crew or food arrives late, it means that I don’t get myself into a state where all I’m thinking of is food – any food. My energy remains at a more steady level. I eat less when food arrives. Win all round!
An added (unexpected) benefit is that my skin looks awesome!! None of that wizened, dehydrated raisin-skin. Well, less of it, anyway.
